This recipe is wicked easy and smells so good coming out of the oven. You may also make drop cookie hermits from this recipe if you don't want to cut into squares.

Made cookies out of this recipe for a cookie swap at work today. This is a moist batter, using a scant tbls of dough, I got about 4 1/2 dozen cookies. I cooked them for 10 mins. They were great with my tea this morning, no feedback from my swappers yet! Thanks, Aroostook, I will be making bars later this week.

These were very good! I'd never heard of them until watching Food Finds on the Food Network. I took them to Bible study and got lots of "these are good!" They are spicy and chewy and would be perfect for a fall treat. I made a confectioner's glaze which boosted the presentation. Thanks for the recipe!
